Leading financial superapp GCash is welcoming the much-awaited season of celebration by once again collaborating with multi-awarded P-Pop sensation SB19 on a catchy holiday jingle ‘We Wish You a Merry GCash.’
Set to the tune of the popular Christmas carol, this year’s LSS-worthy jingle is a nod to the Filipino tradition of ‘pangangaroling’ and ‘aguinaldo’ while enjoining everyone to share their Christmas joys with more loved ones and friends.
“Christmas in the Philippines is all about family – our immediate family, our chosen family in our friends, the family we created at work. During this season, we are more giving and joyful to show our loved ones just how grateful we are to them. We wanted to capture that in the form of bringing the Filipino community together. Through our Christmas jingle, we aim to connect with our Filipino customers by bringing them a little extra joy this holiday season,” said Neil Trinidad, Chief Marketing Officer of GCash.
In the Philippines, ‘pangangaroling’ is done by forming groups and going from house to house singing Christmas carols while greeting residents “Namamasko po!” As a gesture of appreciation, carolers are given ‘aguinaldo’ in the form of food, trinkets, or money.
With the help of GCash, it is now possible to keep the tradition alive in a new way. Carolers may now use their GCash QRs as they ask for aguinaldos from their families and loved ones with the Merry GCash jingle.
The upbeat and energetic Christmas pop song also shares how GCash makes it possible for everyone to experience a festive Christmas season with more loved ones in their lives.
By providing you with a convenient way of making sure your gift list is checked off and your noche buena essentials are complete, GCash has got you covered. But that’s not all as GCash also rewards you for your transactions so that you can treat your family and barkada – and even more people whom you’ve always wanted to include in your gift list.
With SB19 members Ken, Justin, Josh, Pablo, and Stell each taking the limelight with their powerful vocals and rap skills, GCash assures everyone, “Lahat may pamasko! Lahat may regalo!”
“We are thrilled to work once again with SB19, who are trailblazers in the P-Pop scene and have successfully brought Filipino music to the global stage,” Trinidad said. “Their songs about self-empowerment, overcoming challenges, and Filipino cultures and values resonate with a lot of Filipinos, which are also at the core of our brand.”
‘We Wish You a Merry GCash’ can be streamed on Spotify.
